To protect the Client's contact information, Voice123 will never publish it on the "Project Details" page. The company name may be shown in certain cases where the Client opts not to hide it. In order for you to be able to see the name of the company that posted a project (assuming they have opted to make it available), all of the following criteria must be met:
You must be signed into your account.
The project must be opened. If the project is closed the company name will not be displayed.
You must have been invited to submit an audition or proposal to the project.
The Client must have agreed to show their company name. Some Clients want to protect their company name as part of their contact information.
These are three main reasons why Clients want to protect their information:
Many Clients prefer to fully handle the project through Voice123. As such, there is no need for the Voice Actor to contact the Client directly using other means.
Some projects contain confidential information regarding marketing strategies, development, etc. If the name of the Client is published, their competition may figure out their plans.
Some unscrupulous users may use that information to spam (send unsolicited messages) the Client, offering unsolicited services. Unfortunately, this has actually happened in the past and Clients have complained.
It's acceptable professional etiquette to contact a Client or their company directly regarding any project only if the Client invited you directly, sent you a private message, or gave you a phone call, if they haven't reached out, please do not try to contact them.
Often a listed company is not directly involved in the Project, as they're often handled by advertising or marketing firms, and any contact could confuse or upset representatives of the company and possibly harm either Voice123 or the Client's reputation.
A Client's privacy and time should be respected. If this conduct is brought to the attention of Voice123, the consequences may include the cancellation of a membership with no refund, as well as being prohibited from participating in the Voice123 marketplace.
